As time goes by, you may start to notice the formation of fine lines on your face. These early signs of aging may appear in the form of crow’s feet around your eyes. You may also notice them near your mouth or on your forehead. These fine lines are almost always unwanted, and as a result, many people look for ways to have them removed. One such method is laser skin resurfacing. You may want to ask one of our medical professionals about this method of skin rejuvenation if you would like to remove those fine lines and wrinkles that you have been noticing.
Laser skin resurfacing is a popular skin rejuvenation method in which the outer layer of the skin is removed. Lasers are actually concentrated beams of light. When used for skin treatments, the energy is focused onto the skin. With laser skin resurfacing, the heat from the laser vaporizes the skin cells and safely destroys them. This exposes a new layer of skin and sets the healing process in motion. As the skin heals, a new layer is produced as a replacement. This new layer of skin will be smoother and have a more even tone than the one that was removed.
Laser skin resurfacing is typically done as an outpatient procedure in the comfort of our office. Treatment times will vary, depending on how much of an area is being treated in one session. Depending on the area and intensity of the treatment, it will most likely take weeks for the healing process to be completed.
Many patients have seen fantastic results with laser skin resurfacing. The benefit comes when new tissue grows back to replace the old. Most people make good candidates for this procedure, but it is especially ideal for those with discolored, sun-damaged or wrinkled skin. Our team of professionals can give you more detailed information during your initial appointment at our office.
